Samsung Captivate hits AT&T July 18th

AT&T has confirmed launch dates for the Samsung Captivate, their version of the Super AMOLED Galaxy S smartphone.  The Captivate will arrive on AT&T on July 18th, priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement (including a voice plan and $15 data package add-on).

That gets you a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, UMTS/HSPA, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0, along with Android 2.1 and the company's own TouchWiz 3.0 UI enhancements.  The Captivate also gets a 5-megapixel autofocus camera capable of 720p HD video recording (though, like the European Galaxy S, lacking an LED flash), 16GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot.

Samsung Galaxy S2 i9200 tipped: 2GHz, 720p Super AMOLED display and more

It's a slow news day, so lets dabble our feet in the murky rumor waters for a while and take a look at what we're told is the Samsung Galaxy S2 i9200.  The tipped successor to the Galaxy S, and supposedly due in early 2011, according to the talk circulating Russian forum itrans the Galaxy S2 is said to have a whopping 4.3-inch 1,280 x 720 Super AMOLED display with around 340 pixels per inch, certainly intruding into Apple's Retina Display realm.

Meanwhile there's also supposedly a 2GHz CPU paired with 1GB of RAM and a 4GB ROM, together with 32GB of flash storage and a microSD card slot.  The camera is said to be 8-megapixels capable of not just 720p but 1080p Full HD video recording, and the OS to be Android "Gingerbread" which we've heard is expected to drop in Q4 this year.  Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0, while there's also A-GPS, an accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity and ambient light sensors.

The Daily Slash: July 1st 2010

The beginning of the month. By now, you're probably already getting ready for your fourth of July weekend, and there's definitely nothing wrong with that. We'd be lying if we said we weren't. It's a big holiday. Until then though, welcome to tonight's edition The Daily Slash. First up, in the Best of R3 Media, we've got a new rumor about a 2GHz Android device, an iPhone class-action lawsuit, and some other devices get some prices leaked.

The Android smartphone segment keeps getting stronger, and the Samsung Galaxy S looks set to be a key player in 2010.

Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile Officially Announced

Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile Officially Announced

Tonight is the night for Samsung announcements, apparently. The Samsung Epic 4G was just announced for Sprint, and now here we are officially unveiling the Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile USA. It's missing the physical keyboard that the Epic 4G has, but other than that, we're basically looking at the same thing. Taking the best features of the Samsung Galaxy S, and tagging on a new name for a different market, T-Mobile's getting ready to launch their next superphone.

Samsung Epic 4G Official for Sprint

Samsung Epic 4G Official for Sprint

One might imagine that this had come out of left field, but if you'll recall, we've actually seen this phone before. It broke cover thanks to a tipster, and while we had originally put the moniker Galaxy S Pro on it, obviously Sprint and Samsung had a different agenda. Courtesy of Sprint, we've got official word that the Samsung Epic 4G (have to love the new trend, right?) is indeed coming "soon," and it's packing quite a mean punch.

HTC Using Super TFT LCD Displays to Reinforce Dwindling Stock

HTC Using Super TFT LCD Displays to Reinforce Dwindling Stock

If you haven't read the review of the Droid Incredible, or the HTC Desire, then we'll add the main draw of those phones right here (even though you should go read them, anyway): Their 3.7-inch AMOLED displays are amazing. Unless you plan on using your device in direct sunlight all the time, AMOLED is definitely one of the best displays out there (yes, Super AMOLED is better). But, it's been rough for HTC to keep their latest AMOLED-toting device in stock, and a lot of that has to do with that screen. Changes are afoot, though, which may help people out there aching to get their hands on the Droid Incredible they've purchased before the end of July.

T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant pictured ahead of July 21st debut?

T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant pictured ahead of July 21st debut?

Is this the T-Mobile USA branded Samsung Vibrant, the carrier's rebadged version of the Samsung Galaxy S? According to CellPhone Signal it is, and judging by the shots T-Mobile has demanded a few tweaks for their version of the Super AMOLED Android 2.1 smartphone. Gone is the hardware "home" button, with the space now taken up with the usual menu, home, back and search keys we've seen on other Android devices. Meanwhile, contrary to rumors, it seems T-Mobile won't be getting a version of the Galaxy S with a flash added.

AT&T getting Galaxy S with Samsung Captivate

Samsung's Galaxy S may have just dropped in on us earlier on today, but in a few months time it'll be making quite a splash on AT&T's network in the US.  The carrier has announced that it will be selling a rebadged, slightly redesigned version of the Galaxy S, the AT&T Samsung Captivate, "in the coming months"; still present are the Galaxy S' 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 16GB of internal storage and Android 2.1 OS.

There's also WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and HSPA for up to 7.2Mbps downloads, AT&T's network depending.  Samsung will preload their Social Hub, which pulls in Twitter, Facebook and MySpace messages, while AT&T will slap on their Navigator app and AT&T Family Map.  There'll also be the regular Google Android apps, including access to the Android Market, a multitouch-compatible browser and DLNA media streaming support.
